Prayer Requests 7-30-21

It’s Friday, so please remember to pray for Mumsee, Mike, and the Nestlings.

Anyone else?

Psalm 149

Praise the Lord.

   Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
    let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
    and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
    he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
    and sing for joy on their beds.

May the praise of God be in their mouths
    and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to inflict vengeance on the nations
    and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters,
    their nobles with shackles of iron,
to carry out the sentence written against them—
    this is the glory of all his faithful people.

   Praise the Lord.

  1. Praying this morning for the President God has installed over this nation. May God speak to Him and make him His own. May he have believers entering his life and bringing Truth to set him free.

  2. Praying, 6 arrows, that’s a difficult transition, I’m sure.

    Good to see you.

    Joining mumsee in prayer for our president — and prayer for the nation.

  3. ~ The real question is whose child are you? You are either no one’s child—an orphan. Or you are Someone’s child—a son or daughter of God. Desperation forces us to notice the difference.

    Peace is the privilege of God’s children. This peace is strongest in times of desperation. God is extra sweet to his children who are hurting.

    Those who know their need—because their sin separates them from a holy God and death is an enemy too strong for them to escape—can become children of God. Desperation can provoke us to trust Someone else to save us. It can wake us to the eternal danger that awaits anyone who doesn’t acknowledge her need for Jesus to save her. It shows the untold value of being welcomed safely into God’s family. Desperation is a gift. ~

  4. The night before last, I could not sleep, and was feeling stressful about various matters here in the house. Of course, I prayed about it all, too.

    Last night, I felt a peace as I truly left it all in God’s hands and trusted Him to help me through even if things do not go the way I am hoping they will.

    In particular, I would really like Nightingale’s bathroom to be fixed in the next couple or so months, and then for the wall and ac situation in my living room to be fixed early next spring. We can’t take care of the latter until the former is finished because that wall is right in front of my bathroom. We would not have a bathroom to use while the work was being done during the day, for however many days it might take. Also, I so look forward to having more privacy when they have their own bathroom back in use.

    The related issue I had been struggling with is that Nightingale seems to be dragging her feet. Since she has not heard back from the man at that one bank (one that was recommended to her), she is going to pursue the refinancing loan from one of our own banks, which is kind of like starting the whole process over. And I have no idea when she will get around to it.

    The kicker is that I know my beloved but stubborn daughter well enough to know that if I push her in any way (not even meaning to push, but even just gently asking her to act on it soon), that will result in her delaying more. You can imagine how frustrating that is for me.

    Well, last night, with the help of the Holy Spirit comforting and guiding me, I was able to release my desires and expectations in this situation (and a couple others) into God’s hands, and commit to being patient as He works in her and in our situation. What is interesting is that the peace came upon me before I even prayed, and that peace was what allowed me to release it all to Him. It was a relief in my heart to feel that way. Praise God!

  5. But then today, I am again feeling that underlying, low-level sense of anxiety that I don’t know where it is coming from. (I know that sentence is not worded quite correctly, but can’t figure out how to correct it.)

  6. Asking the Lord to calm you into a place of rest before Him Kizzie. I know that unsettled feeling as well when it comes to something I would like to be done…like now..not tomorrow, not next week…but now! And I am hoping that a way will be made to get that bathroom started and finished quickly! ❤️

  7. Praying for the requests today, and for Roscuro, Michelle, and Cheryl. Prayers for BG. Prayer for Mr. P to not worry about Covid. Prayer for 6 Attows’ parents and start of the new school year, piano students, and health concerns. Prayers for crime rates to go down in major cities. Prayrrs for students everywhere going back to school during the pandemic revival. Prayers for Cyrus and Debra as he continues to gain strength. Prayers for AJ and family to have a pleasant weekend. Prayers for Mumsee’s parents and young folks in her life and Idaho Mike. Prayers for Jo to not be restricted in any way by not getting the vax. So many more things to pray for.
